where did the time go?

Oh me oh my- I can’t believe it has been almost 3 months, the holiday’s came and went we get so busy and forget the things we need to do. Waylan turned two; we had a delicious Thanksgiving, wonderful Christmas, and finally a fun New Year. When I figure out how to get the pictures from our new camera on to the computer I’ll update a photo or two.

Not much is new we are still plugging away at the daily stuffs. Todd has started wrestling and Hat’s basketball. Carson has two teeth, and Waylan poops in the potty. Yippee!!!!

Hattie is such a wonderful big sister; she spent the entire Halloween day making it wonderful for her little brothers. She carved 6 pumpkins and even let the boys help her (slowing down the process) and then helped them gather candy at the Halloween Party keeping everyone happy. What would I do without her…

Halloween 2008

What a wonderful litter of tiger cubs we have. Both little boys had a blast asking for candy- only one gets to eat any.


One last picture of two little boys and their “Binkies” only the little one gets to keep his. It was more difficult for the mommy to let the bink go… he was ready to say goodbye. He didn’t even ask for it again… why do they have to grow up so fast?


We spent the entire day grinding and packaging the elk meat our mighty hunter the daddy shot a few weekends ago. Here are a few thoughts I had during the day...The Bull Elk lets all within earshot know how big strong and amazing he is with his beautiful bugle, only to be answered by the cow's call (not nearly as amazing and beautiful as the bull bugle). With her call she lets him know that she does indeed think he is big strong and amazing. Now if only the human marriage had a way of doing this...or do we? How is my bull bugling for my affection… and more importantly am I calling back or is he left to wonder aimlessly through a dense patch of trees hoping to come across a clearcut at the same time I do? Humm something for me to work on.
We have a picture of a Bull Elk standing in the snow looking over a Cow Elk sitting safely at his feet. Recently I taped a note to this picture stating "and they lived mostly happily ever after!"
Just a thought on elk.

Buck Down!!!!

There is something to be said for watching a young man or young women learn from their father.
Watching a rough & tough father take the time to explain the hows and whys of hunting, then seeing on the man you love’s face incredible pride as he watches his son bring home a buck. I’m not sure who is more excited about this new “first whitetail buck from Idaho” the boy who shot it or the dad who taught him how.

The 2008 Hunt has begun...

Oh how they have changed... here is a picture of the Kisler/Marshall boys at hunting camp nearly 8 years ago. Back in the day it was a few little boys watching their dads hunt - now it is a few old guys watching some young bucks bring home the meat.

We'll see what they bring home this year.
